Two scenes had to be cut to get a PG rating for the theatrical release of the movie (condom in Howard's wallet / tentacle tongue in the cigarette lighter socket). This version was then released by CIC Video in 1987 on VHS with the same rating. The later PG DVD release by Metrodome was cut more heavily. All scenes with sexual content were removed, among others. But an uncut DVD with a BBFC 12 rating was also released in the UK. A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.
